Strike 3 Holdings has been filing federal copyright infringement cases for years, but they’ve recently focused their efforts in Florida State Court. The filings in Florida have been widely criticized as a violation of Florida’s “pure bill of discovery”.
In the US, copyright infringement cases are a federal matter and should be handled in federal court.

How we’ve seen Florida State Court cases unfold:
For Strike 3 Holdings cases filed in Florida State Court, if the ISP Subscriber does not act proactively once they receive the ISP notice by settling the case out of court or by filing a motion to quash, Strike 3’s attorneys are sending out letters informing the ISP Subscriber of their intent to sue the ISP Subscriber in federal court.
If Strike 3 Holdings does not hear from the ISP Subscriber or their attorney in response to that letter, then Strike 3 Holdings will file a lawsuit in federal court.
Antonelli Law has been involved in several Strike 3 Florida State Court cases and has had lawsuits dismissed through successful motions to quash.
However, while a motion to quash works for some of these cases, there are certainly drawbacks which you’ll want to discuss with your attorney. We’ve seen cases where defendants have filed a motion to quash and won their case only to be sued again in federal court. Make sure you discuss all of the possible outcomes before you move forward.
Antonelli can also help you anonymously settle your case with Strike 3 Holdings and will fight to protect your anonymity and will aggressively negotiate your settlement amount.
These cases are time-sensitive and whether your case was filed federally or in state court, we can help.
We’ll discuss if settling anonymously, filing a motion to quash, or fighting in court is the best option for you in our free consultation, and we will work to get your case resolved as quickly as possible.
